No red or Green

Hello Everyone,

Monday has arrived here this morning...I'm still on the map, the wind has eased to a breeze, and life carrys on...with or without a rubbish bin...lol..but lots of sun..beautiful day for photography, which my daughter was doing with her new camera...and as I'm camera shy..was forced to sit and let my wrinkles and double chin be exposed to the pack n save photo departennt when she yelled out to someone,"how do you do the texting on this machine" where upon 3 staff and even a few customers gathered round the shop computer and there I was...great!!!....but all in all not too foul after all....and as my daughter said, "it's you Mum"....I'm so sure if cameras lie more than mirrors...must be the lighting...

Onto today though, and MAKE IT MONDAY is up and running again..



This week we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy over at

MY card this week is for a challenge, and very untraditional colours, but I like it, and had fun using one of last years LOTV images


Some say a girl...I say a boy.....



Close up on image [its a boy]



Side view.....

Coloured with pencils, added glitter, inked the edges,snowflake dies,gold ribbon and a couple of blings....all done...I think he is so cute, and quite like the brown...mind you I love brown and these brown pencils are so lovely to use.

My pick from last week had me browsing for a long time as there were so many lovely cards and projects...but in the end I went back to this card....

Fab card Chrissy love your colouring with the browns! I don't know what it is with pictures you either get a really nice one of you (rare indeed the older I get) or, like most of them, you really can't figure out who that old bird is in them, that is til you recognise that its your outfit so it must be you!! I think the odd nice one I get is probably out of focus (or I need new glasses!!) lol xx

Debbie said...

Love the monochromatic card.. Now I say girl only because of the pom poms on
the end of scarf, but like you said some say boy so it's a beautifully colored boy in browns..

Hugs
Debbie

This, THIS is the card that I've been dying to comment on. WOWZERS, Chrissy! This is beyond beautiful! But now that I know it's a boy, I'm not sure that is the correct adjective to be using...it's soooooo, so, so, masculinishly divine!!? Amazing color choices with the soft vintage hues just keeps your eyes staring for what seems forever. Absolutely fell in love with this card. (cough,hint,cough)
Hugs to you,
Lisa xx
